Okay, here I am. Again. Second times a charm.
I am doing an Extended Project (basically a dissertation) for A-level about whether there is such a thing as timeless comedy. And I know it's a big question. Now obviously it depends on what individuals think and everybody has a different idea on things. What I would like from you, is your opinions on the matter. To prove points or to dispute them I need opinions of the general public on the subject. And I thought, there is no better place than here. So... is there such a thing as a timeless comedy?
I would like you to consider:
How far Britain's perception of comedy changed of what has been funny and what has not been funny since the 1910s?
How much has the British comedy scene changed due to influences from abroad?
How much has the world's political climate changed our perception of comedy? Is anything in comedy ever new?
What are the different types of comedy that have become especially prominent in the public view?
Is it the actor/comedian or the writing that makes the comedy timeless?
I don't need anything big or fancy. Just some ideas on these subjects. Thank you for reading. xxx
